Paul Pierce believes Kyrie Irving is better off now with the Celtics and says the team can reach the NBA Finals three or four times in the next five to six years. (0:45)

Red Sox Triple-A affiliate Pawtucket will host "Kyrie Irving Night" on Thursday, with any fan wearing green or Boston Celtics garb receiving a free general admission ticket.

In addition, the PawSox will have a dunk tank outside McCoy Stadium before the game, and in it will sit a Cleveland Cavaliers fan wearing a LeBron James jersey.

"We know how popular the Boston Celtics are throughout the area," PawSox executive vice president and general manager Dan Rea said, "and we hope that our fans will enjoy an evening that trumpets Kyrie Irving's arrival."

The minor league team said "any fan by the name LeBron, Draymond, Steph, Lonzo or Kevin [Love or Durant] will be charged double the price of admission."

The Celtics and Cavaliers open the season against each other Oct. 17 in Cleveland.
